At the beginning of the year I said I wouldn’t take on any additional reviews until I cleared my lists and had my ducks in a row…but when I saw this adorable book, how could I not share it with you? Fairy-Tailed Wish is just perfect for quarantine birthdays or to start a new family tradition.
Megan Pighetti wrote Fairy-Tailed Wish based on her own family traditions and what happened to her as a child. What fun parents she has!
The night before your birthday, you make a special charm, hang it on your bedroom door, and make a wish to be Fairy-Tailed before drifting off to sleep.
During the night, some very special little fairies gain entry into your home and play a practical joke on you. In this book, the mischievous (and sometimes clumsy) fairies fly and drape toilet paper all over Bri’s bedroom until one fairy knocks over a block tower and wakes Bri up to see what’s happened during her slumber.
The fairies make their escape, but not before being thrilled to see Bri’s response to their work. Then off to their next unsuspecting child they go.
This really did happen to Megan – and she shares photographs of her and her children that were taken with them behind reams of toilet paper all throughout their bedrooms! Too much fun!
And here’s an example of what birthday fairies get up to:
Did you buy too much toilet paper this year? Wonder what you can do with it, other than the obvious? Buy this book and you’ll have great fun! But not to worry, you can reuse the tp later for it’s original purpose so it’s not wasted. And your children can put the cardboard rolls to creative use with these fun crafts.
She also provides ideas on how to make your own Homemade Fairy-Tailed Charms, which are so cute – your child could make a new one each year, or add to an old one s their tastes and abilities change. How fun would that be? Simply use craft items you already have.
Kallista was creative making a couple of charms – one is sparkly pipe cleaners with a paperclip and the other was from a crystal growing kit she’s working on – a unicorn covered with clear sparkly crystals, sure to get the attention of fairies.
Fairy-Tailed Wish is a fun, and as you can see, interactive and can include the whole family!
